My studio space is a metal pre-fab garage. Approximately 24'x35', 9' walls peaking to 14' or 15', built on a concrete slab. I decided to leave my space as a single large room instead of building out rooms. It's basically a metal carport with metal sides. It went up quickly, but I still had to do so...

Chris Garges

Though I have yet to get to a place I can work with him on my music I have kept an eye on his work (and ears) for several years and his reputation is well deserved.

Many Tape Op posters on this thread would be good choices - the signal to noise ratio here is excellent in terms of ME.

Nice!

The earliest issue I have is #4 or #5. I bought many runs off of e-bay to fill in issues, but never saw a number 1 come up.

Enjoy...

Visual art? Film? Paintings? Photography? Sculpture? Pretty much all of the above? None close to music, for me. but I have to imagine it would be easier to remain a part of society being deaf rather than blind. If that is your overriding criteria and starting/ending point. I was looking more for di...

Would you rather lose sight or hearing? Why?

I'd read a recent article concerning choosing between the two, if the choice had to be made. I've been ill on the couch and so unable and unwilling to find the original article for reference and inclusion here, but curious about the Tape Op community. The numbers skewed heavily towards the choice of...

Dislike of HFR film/HD TV corresponds to vinyl preference??

Obviously the tube TV in living room from 1996 contributes - I have not grown accustomed to digital HD images as new sets have become prevalent. Watching The Hobbit in HFR was horrid, constantly denying the fantasy world with a look of the later Twilight Zone episodes that were recorded on VHS to sa...

Read research showing most is song based, lyrics, but only 7% or so are instrumental. Heavy chemical use or exhaustion helps turn environmental/ambient sounds...
